WWE NXT ratings: 18-49 number steady, viewership down slightly

With no NBA playoffs last night due to the player boycott following the shooting of Jacob Blake, but coverage of Hurricane Laura and the Republican National Convention dominating the cable news ratings, NXT averaged 824,000 viewers on Wednesday night, down 3.4 percent from the previous week. 

In the 18-49 demo, the show finished 24th on cable with a 0.24 rating, identical to last week.

It's the second straight week that NXT has had no head-to-head competition from AEW Dynamite and is the first time all year that the show averaged over 800,000 viewers in consecutive weeks. The 0.24 rating back-to-back is the first time since February that NXT has hit that mark on consecutive shows. 

In the other categories, NXT did a 0.17 rating in women 18-49 (up 6.3 percent), 0.30 in men 18-49 (down 6.3 percent), 0.12 in people 18-34 (up 33.3 percent), 0.05 in females 12-34 (identical), 0.20 in males 12-34 (up 42.9 percent), 0.28 in people 25-54 (down 6.7 percent), and a 0.41 in people over 50 (down 2.4 percent).

Due to the NHL playoffs, next week's NXT will air on Tuesday, September 1. The episode will be headlined by Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa, Finn Balor, and Adam Cole facing off in a four-way 60-minute Iron Man match to crown a new NXT Champion. AEW Dynamite will be unopposed next Wednesday for its All Out go-home show.
